Main Street Hub Steers New Customers to Local Businesses With HubTargeter

Geo-Targeted Search Finds Relevant Opportunities for Local Businesses via Twitter

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Sep 25, 2013) - Main Street Hub, the "do-it-for-you" marketing platform for local businesses, is introducing HubTargeter -- a new tool that finds and connects customers with local businesses via Twitter. HubTargeter combines a geo-targeted search that pinpoints keywords customers are tweeting with personalized responses on behalf of relevant, local businesses. 

"Consumers frequently use Twitter to share their plans or interests, and HubTargeter puts local businesses on the radar right when people are looking for what they offer," said Andrew Allison, co-CEO at Main Street Hub. "We identify customers on Twitter with our technology and specific social media expertise that many local business owners don't have. Main Street Hub's 'do-it-for-you' approach engages with potential customers on a personal level so business owners can focus on what they do best."

HubTargeter works through a unique combination of technology, personalized content and expertise in understanding the right way to approach a potential customer through Twitter. For example, someone might tweet a question about the best happy hour in downtown Austin. HubTargeter finds this tweet and, on behalf of a nearby client, a Main Street Hub community manager will respond and invite that customer to their happy hour.

"We focus so much energy on our clients that I simply don't have the time to search for new ones on social media," said Gary Schaller, owner, The Car Doctor. "With HubTargeter, Main Street Hub does this for me, and I see new customers coming through my doors as a result."

For customer-focused, B2C businesses, Main Street Hub offers a full-service approach to social media management. Main Street Hub helps local businesses attract more customers and deliver great customer service by managing their reputation and online presence on Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, Google+, Foursquare and TripAdvisor. The company works as an extension of a local business, delivering innovative products enabled by proprietary technology and a dedicated team of social media experts.
